I'm so excited about this SPC theme. I can't wait to see all kinda of cool abandoned stuff from around the world. I'll include all three of my entries into this post and talk a bit about each.
^^^ "Hallgrimur" taken with iPhone 6
We came across this cool abandoned house in eastern Iceland at the base of the Snæfellsjökull glacier on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. From what I understand, it was abandoned in 1975.
^^^ "Monte Palace" take with an iPhone 6.
This was one of the coolest abandoned places we have ever seen. It was a MASSIVE 5-star luxury hotel that was built on the peak of a mountain in the Azores, above the town of Sete Cidades. It was surrounded in controversy. It took like 11 years to build, if I remember correctly. It opened in 1989 and was only open for about a year before it closed it's doors. The place had security guards and dogs keeping the place from being vandalized and burglarized up until 2010, when the powers to be decided they'd no longer pay them. In the humid, warm climate, the hotel quickly fell into disarray.
^^^ "DC3" taken with an iPhone 6.
This is the popular US Navy DC3 wreck in southern Iceland near the town of Vik.
Well, that does it for my three entries. Interesting that this is the first time all of my entires have been taken with an iPhone. lol I hope you enjoyed them! - Adam
